Frank Castle Has A Run-In With The Law In Latest Set Pics From The Punisher Solo Series

Punisher 9

The Defenders isn’t the only Marvel and Netflix show currently lensing in New York City – The Punisher, a solo series designed to flesh out the backstory of one Frank Castle, is also brewing in development, and the latest round of set photos have emerged to prove it.

Indeed, if Jon Bernthal’s hard-boiled vigilante was last seen paying his respects, this fresh batch of pics finds our glowering anti-hero having a run-in with the law. He seems to escape scot-free, too, riding along in the police vehicle for a brief period of time before reaching his destination. Exactly where Frank Castle is headed is anyone’s guess, as Marvel and Netflix have so far remained tight-lipped on the spinoff’s actual plot.

Nevertheless, these pictures of Castle causing a ruckus on the streets of Hell’s Kitchen ought to pique the curiosity of fans, who are no doubt chomping at the bit to see Jon Bernthal reprise as the Punisher. Reports suggest that the former Walking Dead star will appear for a brief cameo in The Defenders in a few months’ time, but until such a time as Marvel confirms or indeed denies said speculation, you can feast your eyes on the photos below. Hat tip to Twitter user @Kültürpat for the find.

Joining Jon Bernthal for the solo series are Daniel Webber, Jason R. Moore, Paul Schulze, Jaime Ray Newman, Michael Nathanson, Amber Rose Revah, Ben Barnes, Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Daredevil stalwart Deborah Ann Woll.

“One batch, two batch, penny and dime.” The Punisher is tentatively on course to premiere sometime later this year, long after The Defenders (summer 2017) and Iron Fist (March 17th). The latter series debuted its full trailer earlier this morning, which welcomed Danny Rand, the final Defender, back to New York City.
